Watch this: TV week of Oct. 27

MONDAY

The Voice, 8 p.m., NBC

The knock-out rounds are upon us, America, in which two singers compete and the winner heads to the live rounds. This year, they're throwing in a very welcome twist: more steals! We love the steals. In fact, we may or may not have squealed with delight last week when Christina stole Will Champlin. Just deal. Speaking of Christina, she's the total MVP of this season. It's amazing what wearing clothes that actually fit will do for a person's grasp on reality.

Scare Tactics, 8 p.m., SyFy

A marathon of new episodes featuring pranks inspired by horror and sci-fi includes unsuspecting people reacting to a cult guru's doomsday plan and a man who knows he's on a prank show but thinks the joke he just played has actually killed someone. We haven't even mentioned the scariest part: Tracy Morgan hosts.

TUESDAY

The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife, 9 and 9:30 p.m., ABC

We're total suckers for Halloween-themed episodes. Lucky for us, our favorite new comedies The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife (get past the name and just watch, it's truly great) are going all out for the holiday. First up, in The Goldbergs, Beverly loves Halloween but is disappointed when her kids don't want to celebrate with her. Don't worry, Mom, they'll be your best friends again in 15 years. On Trophy Wife, Halloween is Jackie and Bert's favorite holiday, which is great news for us, because anything involving Bert (played by the impossibly adorable child actor Albert Tsai) is pure solid gold. Apparently, his mom Jackie tries to make him an Iron Man costume and things don't go well. We're laughing already.

Naked Vegas, 10 p.m., SyFy

Here's a good example of a title working to a show's benefit (ahem, Trophy Wife). This new six-part series follows a team of body painters, but surely that's not why you were going to tune in, is it?

THURSDAY

Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC

Grey's Anatomy holiday episodes are the best Grey's Anatomy episodes, because the show always uses Halloween/Christmas/Arbor Day as an excuse for things to get even more insane at the hospital. This one promises a "barrage of spooky patients" that includes something related to zombies and someone biting a doctor's neck. Eh, that's not really any more far-fetched than some of the other stuff that's happened on this show.

FRIDAY

MasterChef: Junior Edition, 8 p.m., Fox

This version of the cooking competition in which all the contestants are between 8 and 13 years old ends tonight with one more challenge for the four remaining cooks: chicken dishes. Dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets it is! Oh, not that kind of show? Fine.

SATURDAY

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC

Let's all prepare ourselves for the inevitable Scandal parody, because star Kerry Washington is hosting SNL tonight. If they don't spoof Drunk Mellie, the show has failed.

SUNDAY

The Good Wife, 9 p.m., CBS

The emotional intensity of this show right now? We can't even. If you checked out last season around the time Kalinda's long-lost British husband arrived, it's time to start watching again. And be sure to catch up from last year's season four finale, when the whole mess of Alicia and Cary splitting from Lockhart-Gardner to start their own firm really got going. Since then, the show has been on fire. And Sunday night's episode — which will likely go down as one of the show's very best — changed everything. Look for more thoughts about it on our TV blog, The Feed, at tampabay.com/blogs/media, where we explore questions like: Is Willicia ever going to be a thing again? Will Diane ever stop wearing chunky statement necklaces (we sure hope not)? And what will become of Alicia now that she's not so 'good' anymore?
